Washington Square Park Poem by Lee Crowell

Washington Square Park

Rating: 5.0

we sat in Washington Square Park
on a slatted wood bench in the sun
your hair was tied back
and your face flushed pink with little beads of sweat
I stared at your breasts
while you peeled a grapefruit
and we spit the seeds into your paper bag

we walked back to the studio on sixth avenue
it was time for your class
and I had to catch a bus
we kissed for the first time
and when I turned to leave I could have cried
for that moment which would never be repeated
it's the damnedest thing how they never repeat

Thanks for the invitation to read your poem. I really liked it. Different from most people and that's a good thing.

I pray that Denis's poem is hugely successful, and that he'll send me a little gift for providing the inspiration. (or a big one if he gets rich) Seriously Denis, congratulations with your upcoming success. How can we obtain a copy of the publication?

I wrote a piece of poetry based on Lee's poem. My poem, First Kiss Blues, was added here on poemhunter.com then /poem/ then first-kiss-blues/ and has recently been accepted for publication here in the UK. Thanks, Lee.
